Last night the new season of Dancing With the Stars premiered and it was quite the spectacular to watch. The 10th anniversary had twelve new stars paired with the dancers including Patti LaBelle, Redfoo, Riker Lynch, and Rumer Willis. The judges this year consist of Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli who have been judges on the show since the beginning. Also a judge this season is Julianne Hough who was previously a dancer on the show alongside her brother.
The dancers and the stars brought their all and even sitting in my house I could feel the energy they had whether the dancing was good or not. Unfortunately, for one of the couples, last night’s episode will be their only chance to dance on the show as one of them will be voted off next week.

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas

Now, I’ve never actually watched a full season of Dancing With the Stars. I’ve watched bits and pieces and I thoroughly enjoyed last season when Alfonso Ribeiro was on. However, this year, one of the stars is from my favouirte band, R5. Needless to say, I’m cheering for Riker and Allison.
Who are you rooting for this season?
